The work we do

The problems we solve lie at the convergence of technology and finance. We draw on scientific and engineering knowledge to understand infrastructure, using data science techniques to help infrastructure organisations deliver a better service to their customers.

Amey Strategic Consulting & Technology is one of the UK’s leading asset data consultancies in infrastructure. Having grown a team of over forty people in three years, we are a fast-paced start-up within a large infrastructure operator. Our cross-discipline team gives us a unique perspective on capital investment, operational expenditure, how assets create business value and how organisations carry and manage risk.

We use data analytics and in-house software to create new insights that help our clients understand and improve the performance of their businesses. Working with major international system integrators, we are bringing big data and cloud technology to the infrastructure business.

From boardroom down and technology up, our understanding of the complex, interconnected systems that make up a business enables us to create a line of sight between corporate strategy and asset operations, and to take on and solve the toughest problems for vital strategic infrastructure organisations. Our clients include Heathrow Airport, Network Rail, London Underground and New York MTA.

What are we looking for?

Amey Strategic Consulting & Technology will work with you to harness what you have learnt, the skills you’ve developed and help you to grow them; and we will fast-track your CV by providing you with significant responsibility and challenge from day one with the world’s top infrastructure clients. Our small-team culture will ensure you learn from those around you and are involved in a variety of work at all levels. The range of skills in the team will gear you up for senior consultancy and management roles in the future.

Our salaries are competitive and benchmarked against other major London-based consultancies. We are hiring at all levels and we will map you to our Talent Framework during the interview process:
